Sophie Turner‘s body double Laura Butler looks so much like her that she even had star’s own husband Joe Jonas confused. Laura Butler is such a convincing clone of Sophie, that her co-stars, including Sophie’s best friend Maisie Williams, had to look twice when she was on the Game of Thrones set in Ireland. Not only that but she also tried talking to her thinking she was Sophie and even congratulated her on her engagement.
But Laura revealed how she didn’t think they looked so much alike, much until Joe Jonas visited the GOT set and leaned in to kiss her before realizing she wasn’t actually his fiancée. Sophie also shared this hilarious anecdote in an interview. She said, “Joe went up to her at one point and tried to give her a kiss. He was like, ‘Oh, sorry, sorry! It’s not Sophie!'”
Laura further stated how she “definitely takes it as a compliment, it’s such a good compliment.” She also revealed how when she was in her Game of Thrones costume, as she stood in as Sansa Stark, the similarities were even uncannier.
Talking about the same Laura really didn’t understand why people mistook her for the actress at school and in public. She said, “In pictures, I suppose I see the resemblance, but when I’m standing next to her or looking at her directly I don’t see it. I think it’s more the character than Sophie herself if that makes sense. I’m not sure if it’s the hair colour. But she even said herself, ‘oh, this is a bit weird.’ A few of my friends said things to me throughout school. I had seen pictures of her but I didn’t think I looked anything like her then. Personally I didn’t see it but they did.”
